Mapping Voting Districts in the US

 

A Better Understanding of Elections When Mapping Voting Districts in the US

Mapping the voting districts in the US is instrumental for different purposes. But what exactly is a voting district? It is a geographical area used to group voters. Sometimes it is also called an electoral district. There are four types of voting districts – Statewide, State Legislative, Congressional, and Local Government.

Normally, geographic boundaries such as county lines or city lines are grouped to form a voting district. However, most of the time, population is a factor when grouping the voting districts. For example, a typical urban voting district may have some 3,000 voters within 7.5 km radius of the voting station. On the other hand, a rural voting district has 1,200 voters within a 10 km radius of the voting station.
